The Wild Robot
By: Peter Brown
Lexile Level: 740L
Length: 4 hrs
Peter Brown’s first novel The Wild Robot is a new and interesting spin on the popular island castaway theme. After a disaster at sea, Roz is the only robot left intact and marooned on a harsh and uninhabited island. Though uninhabited by people, the island is rife with wild life, and Roz begins to assimilate and process the various communication styles and habits of the island creatures. Initially cautious of Roz, the animals eventually form a tight bond with her, and come to her defense when a search party arrives to reclaim and reprogram her.
